Kids at Krannert

We made the best of the rainy weekend, and found some fun indoor activities to participate in.

Kids at Krannert is an event at the Krannert Art Museum on campus.  We had a great time exploring a museum and trying our hands at several arts and crafts activities.

C sharpening his painting skills.  It took him a few tries to get the hang of it.  He tried to eat the paint several times (He either thought the brush was an eating utensil or a tooth brush, not sure which...)

M spent a long time painting and enjoying the process.

C's final product. Once he dipped his brush in the black, everything else was pretty much black from then on.

M's final product.  She enjoyed experimenting with mixing colors, and liked the effects of adding water to the paint to see how the diluted paint looked on the canvas.

Of course, even though there were all kinds of activities taking place upstairs, C's favorite part was climbing down the stairs and running up and down the spacious hallways.

All in all, it was a fun morning of action before settling in for lunch and naps at home, and it got us out of the house on a dreary day.
